Gift Certificate to a Favorite Restaurant

A gift certificate to their favorite restaurant is the perfect gift for any entrepreneur because, not only does this show them that you care enough to find out what kind of food and atmosphere they prefer, it also gives them the gift of spending quality time with those that mean the most to them.

 This is a thoughtful gift for a business owner because their time is generally limited. Don't have time to cook? Now they can grab a bite on you!

Personalized Notepad Holder

I’ve owned my business for the last 15 years. Last year, my wife gave me a customized notepad holder that had my company’s logo on it, with my name and title engraved on the inside. It’s embossed leather and is one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. 

 This holder is something I use every day and looks nice in meetings with other professionals. A notepad holder is really easy to design, and you can order one right online. Everyone that owns a business should have one. 

 Evan McCarthy, President CEO, Sporting Smiles 

 These make for great personalized gifts because they're engraved memorably for your recipient. Plus they're extremely useful for the business professional.

Professional Development Books

The best gift for an entrepreneur is something that speaks to both their passion and ambition. For example, why not a timeless book about business, such as the classic Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill? 

 Hill’s book provides invaluable insight into the power of big thinking, productive habits, and personal development in order to achieve success. It's a must-read for any aspiring entrepreneur and can be purchased from most major bookstores or online retailers. 

 Aviad Faruz, CEO, FARUZO 

 If you own your own business then you know how important it is to keep your skills honed. This gift idea will give the entrepreneurs in your life the power of knowledge. Both a new business owner and someone established will find that useful.

The ‘Rocketbook’ Reusable Notebook

One of the best gifts I’ve received as an entrepreneur is a Rocketbook reusable notebook. There are so many reasons to love this innovative piece of stationary. For one, it combines the art of old-fashioned handwriting with the power of cloud-based technology. Using a special pen, users are able to write in the notebook. Then, using Rocketbook’s smartphone app, they can scan the pages and save them before wiping the page clean. 

 Another reason I love Rocketbook so much is because it helps cut down on paper waste. Anything that helps reduce a person’s carbon footprint is a great investment and gift. 

 Stephanie Venn-Watson, Co-Founder, Fatty15 

 Some gift ideas support the status quo while others create new ways of working. This fantastic gift idea takes a humble notebook and elevates to a new level of productivity.

A busy entrepreneur using a portable charger.

Portable Charger

Portable charges are the best gifts for busy entrepreneurs on the go. They’ll appreciate this gift even more if they already have chargers because there’s so many places to stash them. That way, they’re always prepared. Portable chargers are great to have in the car, in a work bag—even in a gym bag for the ambitious go-getter who gets business done while working on themselves! 

 Liza Kirsh, Chief Marketing Officer, Dymapak 

 Portable chargers are awesome gift ideas simply because everyone, everywhere can always find a use for them — and you can almost never have too many.

Special Customized Gifts

When it comes to gifts for entrepreneurs, you can't go wrong with something specially customized to their business. Entrepreneurs often see their business as an extension of themselves, so a gift that relates to both them and their business—such as customized stationery or a novelty gift that can be placed in their office—is something that’s sure to be cherished. 

 Tracey Beveridge, HR Director, Personnel Checks 

 Whether they're practical gifts or something silly, personalization always makes them more special — as the best ideas do.

Anti-Blue Light Glasses

A good option for a gift for many entrepreneurs would be blue light filtering glasses. The blue light given off by screens has been shown in studies to suppress melatonin production, which can disrupt sleep cycles and lead to fatigue. Additionally, blue light has been linked with increased stress and anxiety levels. Anti-blue light glasses can help mitigate these effects by filtering out harmful blue light emissions. 

 This gift will help the entrepreneur in your life stay more focused and productive throughout the day. So, if you're looking for a gift to someone you know to stay healthy and productive, blue light blocking glasses may be the perfect option. 

 Kate Wojewoda-Celinska, Marketing Manager, Spacelift 

 Business gifts should make your recipient's life easier, and these glasses fit the bill. They're a great gift idea for anyone that stares at the screen for hours, something small business owners and major CEOs alike do on a regular basis.

Online Masterclasses

The best gift for an entrepreneur is a masterclass or similar online course. This type of gift gives them the opportunity to learn from experts in their field, and gain valuable knowledge that can help them succeed in their business. Additionally, this type of course is often available on a flexible schedule, so they can take it at their own pace and fit it into their busy lifestyle. 

 The lessons don’t have to be hyper-specific to their business. Fun hobbies and passions can still help entrepreneurs expand their expertise, embrace growth mindsets, and gain valuable new perspectives. Plus, you never know when these tutorials might spark new business ideas! 

 Kate Duske, Editor in Chief, Escape Room Data 

 This next gift idea spreads knowledge around in the same way the business books did earlier. If your learner digest information better online, business courses on the computer might be a better choice than books. They certainly make unique gifts.

Subscription to Evernote Professional

For a serious, promising entrepreneur, I would recommend gifting a subscription to Evernote Professional. This service is ideal for (as the name suggests) taking quick notes and pictures but it’s also useful for amending pictures and documents to notes, recording lectures and meetings, scheduling out events, and setting reminders. Evernote even lets users share information between devices, with a ton of additional features that are ideal for working professionals. 

 Evernote is necessary for the entrepreneur on the go. An entrepreneur manages a lot of information in their day-to-day life and ideas can spontaneously spring forth. Evernote is the tool to record these ideas and information, and organize them so they’re available at a crucial moment like an internal meeting or a client appointment. All of this is why I think the gift of an Evernote Professional subscription to the entrepreneur in your life is great for this holiday season.

White Noise Machine

Most entrepreneurs are always on the go, with their mind constantly running. More often than not, this affects sleep schedules and the ability to relax. This is why I think an amazing gift for an entrepreneur would be a white noise machine. 

 This simple piece of technology has proven to be extremely useful when it comes to helping a busy mind relax. While they may not think they need it themselves, they’re likely to use it when it’s been gifted, and in due time they’ll come to love it and the benefits it provides. 

 Asma Hafejee, Senior Marketing Executive, CMR Surgical

Premium Coffee

If there’s something all entrepreneurs enjoy and use to fuel their empires, it's coffee. Search for a highly rated and expensive single origin coffee for your fellow entrepreneur. They’ll appreciate this gift, as it’s sure to be consumed on a daily basis in the coming weeks. It’ll mean a lot to them to not have to worry about where their next cup of coffee is coming from and, as an entrepreneur myself, I know I would appreciate and value this gift. 

 Scott Krager, Founder, TubeSplit

Cord Organizer

A cord organizer can be a very simplistic and cost-saving gift, but it’s an extremely helpful one. I always mess up my cables, and with the number of devices I work on, it's just a frustrating mess. A quality cord organizer helps not only keep things organized, but also frees up physical space. Other than aesthetics, you can also check for any cable improvements. 

 One of the most helpful aspects I’ve found is that it keeps equipment temperature low, ultimately protecting my devices by providing adequate airflow. If you feel an entrepreneur needs a flashy gift, it's not true. A lot of us appreciate things with practical use. Try this one out.

The book Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss

Motivational Biographies

My suggestion for a gift this year is the book Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss. This captivating book is a collection of tools, tactics, and valuable life lessons which may serve as a game-changer in someone’s professional life and beyond. Ferriss spent two years interviewing powerful people who'd achieved great success. 

 These business leaders were asked many out-of-the box questions you don’t typically see in interviews or articles, like what are the biggest wastes of time for novices in their field or what do their workout routines look like, and why? What books have they gifted most to other people? What do these people do in the first sixty minutes of each morning? The list goes on. 

 Ferriss focuses on actionable details to give readers inspiration to take risks, make their dreams come true, and develop good habits. This book isn’t only informative, inspiring and motivational, it’s also written in a witty manner. A true must-read!

Sets of Desk Organizers

I would say that any aspiring entrepreneur is required to have a striking workspace. Their desk and workplace will have a stylish and coordinated look with a stylish desk organizer set. Most desk organizers include everything an entrepreneur needs to ensure their office is ready for work, from various sizes of file organizers to a pen holder. 

 Salim Benadel, Director, Storm Internet

Self-Care

Any self-care item is a great gift for an entrepreneur. Show bomb gift sets are some of my favorites. I’ve always been intrigued by bath bombs, but I’m more of a shower person (which makes this product perfect). A shower bomb usually includes aromatherapy shower steamer vapor tablets that can contain essential oils and relaxing aromas. 

 Every time I use them, I feel like I’m in a luxurious spa rather than my home shower. Aromatherapy is said to have a relaxing effect on people, and I always feel refreshed after I use this product. 

 Annie Ricci, Senior Manager of Digital Marketing, Prima

A dayplanner.

Effective Planner or Datebook

One gift for an entrepreneur is a high-quality planner or organizer. Entrepreneurs often have busy schedules and many different tasks to keep track of, so having a reliable planner can be a valuable tool to help them stay organized and on top of their workload. 

 A planner can also be a useful way for an entrepreneur to set their goals, track progress, and reflect on achievements. Additionally, many entrepreneurs appreciate the tactile experience of writing things down by hand, so a planner can be both a thoughtful and practical gift that they’ll be sure to use and appreciate on a daily basis.

Subscription to a Business Magazine

Anyone interested in business and who’s started their own company can benefit from a subscription to a business magazine or newspaper. They’ll be able to stay up-to-date on new trends, learn from others, and invest in themselves through spending time on something like reading informative articles. 

 A subscription can be to something like Financial Times, Entrepreneur magazine, Money magazine, Bloomberg Businessweek, Fortune, Fast Company, plus so much more. This might not be something you would subscribe to and pay for on your own, but it's something an entrepreneur can enjoy and benefit from when given as a gift.
